Return to Question 60

**Correct
answer to Q60: **While a wave moves to the right, point B is moving up to
the maximum displacement, then back down to zero, and then to a negative displacement,
and finally back to equilibrium. That is a complete cycle, carried out in one
period, and describes the **medium** motion. b) is the correct answer.

**Hint for question 65: **Wavelength
is the distance between two adjacent crests of a wave, as, for example, the
peak to peak distance.

**Correct
answer to Question 65: **The distance from one peak to the next is 2 feet.
You can also take the distance from any one point to the next precisely similar
point, for example, from a zero where the wave is going up, to the next zero
where it is again going up and has completed one cycle in space.

Return to Question
75

**Correct
answer to question 75:** The period is the time for one complete cycle.
Follow the point B as is moves up and then back down. It reaches its lowest
point after 1.5 s, but that is not yet one complete cycle; it must next return
back to its starting position, which it does by 2 seconds. The period is thus
2 seconds and the correct answer is d).

**Hint for question 78: **The
frequency is the number of cycles occurring in one second (Hertz). Examine how
many cycles (or fractions of a cycle) point B has undergone after one second.

Return to Question 78

**Correct answer to question 78: **After one
second, point B has undergone only half a cycle, so that the the frequency is
0.5 Hertz. One can also use* f*=1/*T *= 1/(2 s) = 0.5 Hz.

**Hint for question 80: **Wave
velocity is the distance traveled divided by the time to travel that distance.
Pick a point and see how far it travels in, say, 1 second.

Return to Question
80.

**Correct
answer to question 80: **The wave travels one wavelength in one period. Thus
the wave velocity (distance over time) is 2 ft/2 s = 1 ft/s. Another way to
do this is to use the formula velocity = frequency x wavelength = 0.5 Hz x 2
ft = 1 ft/s.
